I met a sad sight this morning when I looked into my cashew butter jar and realized there was only a smidgen left of the good stuff. Sad times indeed.
Enough about the lame stuff though, it is WIAW after all.
It started well enough with one of my favourite breakfasts.
* Overnight buckwheat bowl with chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin, a little banana, cinnamon, and stevia. And peanut flour paste with strawberries on top. *
Yah, still not sick of this one. Although, I did switch up the oat bran in favour of buckwheat.
I woke up with the best intentions to go to spin class, but I’m still exhausted. So with that I’m going on day two of rest. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but I’m getting a little anxious already. Silly restless leg syndrome.
I was getting quite good with being okay with my rest days, but now that I’ve increased my calories a bit, it has been a struggle to get used to them.
Well, its good to get out of that comfort zone. Being uncomfortable gives us positive changes and makes us a stronger person.
It ended up being a beautiful morning, and I was able to gather my thoughts while watching the sun rise. What a perfect start to the day.
I should count how many pictures I have with me and Starbucks, I’m guessing too many.
Today I had to be out of the house by 9, so I packed up some things and my Dad and I went to Starbucks, because I obviously needed some caffeine.
And I also brought a squash with me…what, you don’t bring Kabocha with you when you visit your parents?
I ended up using all my other veggies at home, so I brought a squash along to eat for a snack, since I’m super cool.
Roasted, with a shot of coconut butter on the side. Delicious.
Yep. I have a squash addiction. The lady working the till at the grocery store asked if I had a restaurant that I was buying it for…yikes.
I guess it looked that way since I bought 6 squash, 4 egg white jugs, 6 cans of pumpkin, and 2 big cartons of almond milk. I like to stock up so I don’t have to run to the store every other day. Still, awkward times at the grocery store.
Since our house is undergoing a spray session, I had to be out until 4.
Luckily, I got to hang out with my dad, and we both did some work on our computers.
I seriously don’t know where the day got to, it went by so fast.
We quickly visited the mall and got some David’s Tea to drink while chatting. They had a bunch of new Fall flavours out, which made me a happy lady! I couldn’t decide which one I wanted, since they all sounded splendid.
My Dad and I both settled on a cup of Persian Apple, which was delicious. And I had a photo shoot with the cup and a candle, because I’m a nerd and thought it would make a neat picture, which it didn’t.
When I got home, I wasn’t really hungry, but knew I should grab something. So I got to work on a quick dinner.
A simple bowl of savoury oat bran with nutritional yeast, hemp seeds, red pepper flakes and an egg.
I just cooked up the oat bran with a little coconut oil and water, added in the nutritional yeast, and topped with a sprinkle of hemp seeds, and eggs.
The perfect, easy dinner. With a spinach salad with red peppers on the side. Needed to get in my greens in too.
As always, I’ll finish up the day with a night snack before heading to bed.
Do you enjoy rest days?
Best thing you ate today?
Have a fantastic Wednesday!
